Mammoth Grinder have made a name for themselves by playing a mix of old school death metal , d-beat and hardcore. While that combination of influences isn't singular to them they have played it with a considerable amount of consistency and rage. This got the attention of more than a few people including 20 Buck Spin.
While not their first time around the block the band manages to play with the exuberance of a group of 15 year olds discovering South Of Heaven for the first time. Meanwhile, their musicianship comes of sounding like if Morbid angel play Domination front to back at top speed.
The riffs are all there, and the drums pound like a beast coming up from hell. The production helps to magnify these aspects as the band favors a more dirty old school sounding approach giving the drums a fair amount of cavernous feeling to them as the guitars buzz and the bass is turned up just enough to bully the listener.
All these thing would make a great bit of worship if Mammoth Grinder wasn't so adept at taking these traits and using them how they see fit. The band does a great job of doing things their way while saluting back to the past this makes for a great listen overall.
